Spelt pancake smothered with cacao ricotta


My spelt pancake specialty. Cacao and ricotta? Yep you read right. Trust me, these are delicious! This is a Dana Trapani inspired recipe!

I love ricotta because its low-fat and great as a desert or added to savoury dishes:)

Spelt pancake recipe for about two  (depending on how thick you want it).

250g of ricotta cheese

1tbs of cacao powder. (I used cacao mixed with flaxseeds)

1tsp of honey



1-Add the ricotta to a bowl and mix your cacao powder.
